4 bolts, 2 bolt chain anchor
On the East Wall of the Troll Hut Corridor, this route snakes up just inside the arete and can actually be climbed as one of two routes; right of the bolts to the arete and top anchor, the moves are about 5.7; left of the bolts and straight up to the anchor via the overhanging top face, maybe 5.8+. Chains for extending the anchor are forthcoming, as they will start to be on any number of NDC climbs in the near future, eliminating the need for bail webbing and lost biners or quicklinks.
Rap or lower from chain and anchors.

Arrived in the canyon to clouds, gusty 30 mph north winds, and temps in the low 30s F. Shouldered packs and bent to the wind and humped down to the shelter of the Troll Hut, inhaled some motivation, set anchors and rap-bolted this beauty in about an hour. Rested, waited for any hint of sun (in vain) and finally sent the FA in Gypsy Conditions; clouds and snow, wind and remote location.
